Marvel’s Deaf Superhero Wears Hearing Aids in New Game

Hawkeye has long been portrayed as deaf in comics, but not in movies.

Marvel superhero Hawkeye has a history of being deaf and hard of hearing, as well as using hearing aids, yet that’s never been represented on screen, Polygon reports.

But many fans wonder why Marvel Studios hasn’t brought that version of Clint to life. Now in the new Marvel’s Avengers game, archer Clint Barton appears to wear hearing aids, which would be the first time this classic version of Hawkeye appears in animated action.
In the official announcement on the PlayStation Blog, the developers revealed that they were drawing from the comics. In the comic My Life as a Weapon, Clint wears a hearing aid.
